It's one think to take a bunch of diverse styles and blend them or vary your style from one song to another on an album but not every 30 seconds within the same song, that's just annoying.

I like where he goes "A hunka hunka"

It's different. I liked the latter part of the song more than the beginning.

It's typical Alarm.  They get cast as "U2-wannabes" a lot and admittedly in the later stages of their career they sort of were but their early stuff is much closer to The Clash.  And Mike Peters solo stuff is really all over the place.  I just always wish Mike Peters the best because the poor guy has had cancer TWICE and yet he's still out there plugging away with his music.

I downloaded the latest album by his new Alarm band (he's pretty much the only original member) and I'm still not sure what to think of it.  Lots of programmed drums which I hate but I really like Mike's songwriting and that's still present.

Isn't the second part of the song pretty much the same as the first part?

Maybe I just got more into it by the end.

I like the live version of this better than the album version. I love the base playing.
